    Managing a diet completely free from gluten can be a real challenge, especially when it comes to eating out. At this time of year in particular, when social calendars are full, festive meals in restaurants and the homes of friends and family can lead to stress and unfortunate physical symptoms for those with non-coeliac gluten sensitivity.

    Gluten can often be found lurking in many pre-prepared and processed foods, sauces and everyday ingredients. Common hidden sources of gluten include:

    • Soy and teriyaki sauce
    • Sausages
    • Condiments such as ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise
    • Broths, stocks and bouillons
    • Ground spices
    • Chewing gum
    • Pre-seasoned meat and fish
    • Processed deli meats
    • Chocolate
    • Chips

    Aside from gluten-containing ingredients, those with non-coeliac gluten sensitivity may also be affected by cross contamination. This can occur when gluten-free foods come in physical contact with foods containing gluten, and can result from the use of shared utensils and appliances such as deep fat fryers and toasters — or even through something as simple as a dusting of gluten-containing flour floating through the air.

    Ill effects

    For those with non-coeliac gluten sensitivity, the unpleasant side effects of accidental contact with gluten can include:

    • Bloating, gas or abdominal cramping
    • Diarrhoea or constipation
    • Nausea
    • Headache
    • Brain fog
    • Fatigue
    • Joint pain
    • Numbness in the legs, arms or fingers

    It’s easy to feel like options are limited for those wishing to avoid gluten, and it can be tempting to turn down social invitations rather than worry about every bite you eat. Rather than become a hermit — or a potential victim of accidental ‘glutening,’ — why not try Gluten Shield, designed to break down residual gluten, letting you live life to the fullest?
